Skeptical professor tracks paranormal

Bob Carroll always knew he was a skeptic. His skepticism started when he was young, with a disbelief in Santa Claus, and it has led the professor of philosophy to spend more than three decades studying the psychology of deception and self-deception, questioning most things supernatural and paranormal and explaining the principles of sound logical reasoning to others.


In 1994, he began publishing a Web site for the doubting Thomases of the world to use as a hub to educate themselves about a wide variety of hoaxes, quackery and pseudoscientific phenomena that can take advantage of a human’s trusting nature.
